A Famous-Five style adventure for grown-ups – CARDIGANSHIRE / LONDON
Lean on Me
When a flock of crows invades their apartment block, Parisian neighbours Aurore and Ludovic speak for the first time. Outwardly the fashion designer and debt collector share little in common, but they both lead isolated lives, she in a loveless marriage, he recently widowed and new to Paris. There is an immediate spark between them, and when Aurore is threatened by her business partner it is Ludovic she turns to for help. As events begin to spiral out of control, they begin a passionate affair…
Winner of the prestigious Prix Interallié, Lean on Me is both a touching love story, an insightful look at the alienating effect of contemporary urban life.
